Brandon Marshall’s green shoes cost him $21K

Brandon Marshall knew he’d get fined for wearing green shoes, but he said he would match it in order to bring awareness to┬áhis own foundation, which focuses on mental illness.

As you can see by his Instagram, the fined he received for wearing shoes that were not approved by the league was $10,500. Since he is going to match it, the shoes will cost him $21,000.

But as Marshall stated, this move brought awareness to his foundation and to him, it was all worth it. Good for him.

** On a side note, the letter also says that the Bears’ shoes are supposed to be predominantly white. This was something that I noticed during the preseason but now it’s been confirmed.
